PARSONS — Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., recently presented Tucker County Emergency Services Support Facility Station #2 with a U.S. flag.

The following is a letter from Manchin:

“I have always said what makes West Virginians some of the best people in our nation is the unwavering commitment to helping someone in need. Here in the Mountain State, if you are hungry, you will be fed. If you are lost, someone will not only give you directions but will offer to drive you to your destination. That’s just who we are. Our first responders provide an irreplaceable service to the public in times of great need and perform acts of heroism every day to protect our citizens. Their efforts do not go unnoticed, and I sincerely appreciate them for their unwavering courage and selfless service.

“Additionally, I join you in honoring the memory of Tucker County EMS President Larry Armbruster. His service and legacy will never be forgotten by the countless lives he touched.

“I thank all those who made today’s special celebration for the new facility possible and I proudly join you in thanking all emergency responders for their service. Please never doubt the outstanding work you accomplish every day in our great state.”
